Not to give anyone short shrift - Donna wrote a few songs herself, Brent wrote several, even Mickey and Phil contributed material.

Also - I consider Robert Hunter to be an integral part of the band - the whole trip would have been altogether different without him. By that logic, the majority of their originals were written by band members.
